Before Kidman and McGregor there was Zsa Zsa Gabor!!! Henri de Toulouse Lautrec frequently visits the Moulin Rouge, where he drinks cognac and draws sketches of the dancers and singers. Though the son of a French count, Henris legs were badly deformed by a childhood fall, and his personal life is often unhappy as a result. While he is going home one night, a spirited young woman of the streets, Marie, asks him for help. He falls in love with her, and the two become involved in a tumultuous relationship. It becomes increasingly difficult for Toulouse Lautrec to balance his personal feelings, his artistic abilities, and his family name and position.
